October 29th, 2010 by jake · 4 Comments

Interesting flashbacks today. Since Greg and his executive pals at A Kentucky Newspaper are so keen on taking everything out of context and ignoring reality, here you go.

    What is the purpose of posting these videos? Based on the headline it appears you are trying to make Fischer look bad. Even knowing these are snippets that provide no context, I don’t hear anything controversial. Waste of space.

    So, why bother commenting?

    Here’s the deal: Don’t like it? Don’t read it.

    And I quote from above:

    That’s why.

    Mark: Fischer dude believes crime downtown is a perception problem and the perception must be fixed. Having lived downtown, I take great offense to that.
    As for industrial development around parks, I don’t think that’s been controversial because no one knows what the hell he’s talking about. It’s like he believes if he says a bunch of words together like green, bicycle, parks & jobs- he wins.

    Compared to the density of people in downtown the crime rate is low. Many of the neighborhoods surrounding downtown are not safe. Fischer is right about lighting and other landscaping elements adding to safety and the perception of safety. The broken window policing theory works. The biggest thing downtown needs to improve safety is less vacant storefronts. Nothing will improve downtown livability and economic viability more than an attractive waterfront that does not feature a hideously ugly elevated waterfront expressway until at least the year 2120.
